Antique hand carved African RARE Luba Figurine/Figure from the Congo. This piece very likely belongs to the category of ancestor or commemorative figures, Singiti, which are the most important sculptural production of the Luba and Hemba. The Hemba inhabit an area of hilly savannas along the east bank of the Zaire River, just to the north of their larger neighbors the Luba. The arts of the two cultures have often been confused, but during the last 30 years a scholastic distinction between them has emerged. This piece is a very unique item and it shows a women on her knees holding a pot. This piece is in good condition as shown in pictures. Size: 11.5” Tall.
